Meeting of German Sovereigns. There is a rumour current in the diplomatic world that before the present understanding between Austria and Prussia, and at the time when a conflict between the two Governments seemed probable, M. von Beust, the Saxon Minister, sounded M. von Mensdorff on the project of declaring war against Prussia, and of redu- cing that Power to the limits to which it was confined before the Seven Years' War. He promised Austria, it is alleged, the military help not only of Saxony but of several other middle States, which would all have put their armies under the command of Austria. Two reasons, it is said, prevented the latter Power from accepting this offer first, the fear that a struggle' between Austria and Prussia would lead to a Euro- pean war; and secondly, the refusal of Bavaria to form part of a league against Prussia. According to our Vienna correspondent, M. von Bismarck knew of the diplomatic intrigues of M. von Benst, thanks to certain indirect and very clever indiscretions of some Austrian statesmen. M. von Bismarck, it is stated, then advised the King to be reconciled with Austria, to prevent this coalition of the rest of Germany. M. von Beust, who went to Vienna with the idea that Saxony might reconquer the Saxon Provinces which the King of Prussia seized on the fall of Napoleon I., has returned to Dresden, convinced that M. von Bismarck will never forget what has happened.T,International (London French paper).
